Monsoon Travel In The Post-Pandemic World

The report has revealed that 54% of respondents are keen on taking a trip of 1-3 days while 33% wish to embark on a weeklong monsoon trip. Working professionals who can avail the facilities of remote and hybrid working models are especially looking for longer vacations in proximity to nature. The survey has also thrown light on the shift in the behaviour of travellers in the post-pandemic world. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, summer used to be the peak travel season. Monsoons would see a lesser number of travellers owing to factors like traffic, road conditions and end of summer vacations. But after the pandemic, people are inclined to travel more to make up for the missed vacations.
